Has anyone performed a Blackstone analysis on Lucas oil stabilizer? I will get one done with UOA if anyone is interested?

Also what id the makeup of LOS??? I know what it does, just no clue what it is.

It's not worth putting in an engine let alone paying for a UOA.

Definitely UOA it w/tbn to see if this stuff is worth anything.

Here is the skinny on LOS

Unless listed all are 'Zero'

Lucas Virgin
TBN - 0.1
Visc - 615.3
FP - 435
Calcium - 3
Magnesium - 1
Phosphorus - 4
Zinc - 2

Rotella T / LOS 5 to 1 blend
TBN - 8.5
Visc - 115.4
FP - 420
Boron - 17
Silicon - 2
Calcium - 1442
Magnesium - 7
Phosphorus - 604
Zinc - 817

Does anyone have any feedback on Rotella blend, have I diluted it since it is a 5 to 1 mix??? or 83.33% Rotella / 16.67% Lucas

So, the point of adding this to your oil would be...


Yeah, whatever..at least for now.

To feel good because it says to on the bottle? Looks like a worthless additive to me, wonder what it really does that isn't showing up on the OA

Nothing but an oil thickener. You are better off just stepping up a weight if you want thicker.

Is the VIS in Cst and at 100C??
if so Lucas is a OCP polymer VII and your rotella mix is now thicker than a 250 gear oil

looks more like a subtractive than an additive.

Much better off with a bottle of SLOB or VSOT.
